[SUPREME] Public opinion requested on possible court rule changes
Start Date: 5/23/2014 All Day
End Date: 5/23/2014
Entry Description
The Indiana Supreme Court Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure is interested in obtaining comments from judges, attorneys and the general public to proposed amendments to the Indiana Rules of Court.

The goal of the proposed changes is to reduce the time from the conclusion of a case in the trial court to the issuance of an appellate decision.  The standard for completion of a transcript established by the American Bar Association is thirty days.  The federal courts also abide by a 30 day time limit.  Only three states other than Indiana have a time limit as long as ninety (90) days.

The primary proposed change is found in Appellate Rule 11(B).  After the appellant files the Notice of Appeal the time for a Court Reporter to file the transcript with the trial court clerk or Administrative Agency would be reduced from ninety days to thirty days.  Under Rule 11(C), motions for extensions of time will be disfavored and only granted in extraordinary circumstances.  The changes to Rule 11 necessitated other changes to the Appellate Rules.

Details about the proposed rule changes can be found at http://courts.in.gov/4211.htm

The nine-member Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure is reviewing the proposed changes and comments.  The Court created the Committee to conduct a continuous study of the Indiana Rules of Trial Procedure and other rules as directed by the Court.  The Committee must report to the Court recommendations and proposed amendments directed at simplicity in procedure, just determination of litigation, and elimination of unjustified expense and delay.

The deadline for submitting comments is June 23, 2014.  Comments can be sent via email or in writing to the following addresses:
  • Lilia G. Judson, Executive Director
    Indiana Supreme Court
    Division of State Court Administration
    39 South Meridian Street, Suite 500
    Indianapolis, IN 46204
